all to do with shoes, shoes, shoes

a siljan shoe rack for narrow places
almut has a very narrow hall and was looking for storage to fit shoes, scrafs, gloves, umbrellas, sunglasses etc.

what he she did was, “take three siljan bathroom mirror cabinets and hung them on the wall. they are only 16 cm deep (6 1/4″)! i put shoes in the lowest one and the other items in the remaining siljans. i even exchanged the blue sliding doors with placemats, because i didn’t like the blue ones.”

a floating shoe rack
wendy from vancouver, bc, fell in love with this slot-style shoe rack from design within reach and made her own version with a few ikea items.

“it was small enough to fit in behind my door without preventing it from swinging open, however at $110, it wasn’t so within reach. so, i took a trip to ikea to find the raw materials that could help me build something similar.

basically i hung the klang wall shelf (with drywall anchors – i have heavy shoes), and then mounted both strecket cabinet handles about 6 cm (2 1/2″) above it (using drywall anchors again).
